the only reason i'm changing lanes on the freeway is to get into the faster lane, ergo, i will be accelerating.

not to be an asshole, but unless you then resign yourself to a life in the left lane, eventually you are going to have to come back, no?

Alleviate a stomach ache:

tie your index finger with string at the uppermost bend nice and tight. Get a sewing needle and prick the finger tip so it draws a few drops of blood. Untie finger and you feel better in a few minutes. That voodoo shit really works, at least for me.

Hmm, I am sure it will work for me. Pricking my finger is almost guaranteed to make me fall unconscious (yes, I am a big girl's blouse, lol).

Better than sticking your finger down your throat?

Well, while we're on cars: When backing up, turn around to look behind you. You'll still have a small blind spot on the left. Check it. Do not look forward and trust your mirrors. This seems like common sense, but...

Agreed, but, I have found that it is MUCH easier to switch lanes by accelerating than just by turning the wheel. It's a lot more fun, too. Just try it on an empty farm and market road, you will be like "Wow, that was fun, I want to do it again!".

if i lived life according to this thread, i would be a great driver, albeit one with a lot of bleeding pinpricks on my finger

i would also say "negative acceleration" a lot

i guess that's an improvement

How to roll your own cigarettes: Courtesy of this fine site. http://www.concept420.com/how_to_rol...int_spliff.htm (I couldn't find a nice step-by-step for a tobacco-based cigarette, so just pretend that the paper is filled with tobacco rather than the other sort of stuffing)

My hand-rolled, er, cigarettes, were once voted "best" by a pretty august group of, um, smokers! The secret is to move your fingers outward while twisting the cigarette: tighter and more uniform compaction.

After having my Celica for a few weeks, I see why people buy backing-up sensors. Low slung body =/= good rearward visibility.
P.s. this surprised me but the rental car I drove for a while, a Chevrolet Impala, had some of the largest driver's side blindspots I have ever encountered
